Interesting story out of England, where their national cricket team is playing India.
England have defended Moeen Ali for wearing wristbands showing support for Gaza during the third Test with India.
The Worcestershire batsman, 27, wore bands saying 'Free Palestine' and 'Save Gaza' on the second day in Southampton.
Making political statements with apparel is a no-no in cricket, as it is in most sports.
What is interesting to me is that we have a low-key example of what is happening around Europe the last few weeks as the Gaza war grinds on; Muslim-Europeans protesting the war, often taking out frustrations on Jews in general to the point where Drudge is playing up an article casting such attacks as the worst thing to hit Europe since the Holocaust.
Given his name, Mr. Ali would seem to fit that general trend, albeit in a peaceful manner. England being represented by a guy of Pakistani descent born in Birmingham makes for an interesting microcosm of what Europe is dealing with.
